British actress Rachel Weisz is to replace disgraced supermodel Kate Moss as the face of Burberry's signature fragrance.

The 34-year-old ABOUT A BOY star was approached by the fashion house after Moss was axed from the high-profile contract, following the publication of photographs of her allegedly snorting cocaine.

Burberry is also in talks with actress Sienna Miller, who is set to become the new face of its clothes range.
